Lovely rich dark gravy - possibly slightly overpowering! Good selection of vegetables. Going to have it next day with mashed potatoes which should work well.
We had this for dinner tonight. We had a tough shoulder cut that needed a special touch... this was it. Both my husband and I liked it very much, and it is an alternative to my Roast Venison and a lot easier! The chocolate and the currant jelly (I used black, but intend to get red, the next time) added just a touch of sweetness that goes well with venison. I will also make sure I have Juniper berries as one of my new stock items on my spice shelves. I have added this to my Wild Game cookbook... Thank you for a nice recipe!
I prepared this for Christmas dinner for four and it was the perfect meal! I used a loin-roast cut and left it whole for a more impressive presentation. This recipe makes an abundant amount of gravy, which is smooth, dark and lovely. A nice change for us, very enjoyable!
